U2 smashed the house record last night (September 24) at Giants Stadium. The previous attendance record was held by Pope John Paul II after his visit to the stadium in 1995.
With concert goers in excess of 84,472 it was a fantastic night at Giants Stadium. Speaking from the stage at the end of the night Bono said, “News just in. We’ve broken every record for attendance in this stadium – including the Pope. Sorry Bruce – we know it’s your birthday and all.” Before adding later, “I know they’re knocking this place down…we probably won’t be here again before the wrecking ball but it was a magic place for us as well as the Giants.”
U2 360 Tour continues its North American tour with dates in Washington, Charlottesville, Raleigh, Atlanta, Tampa, Dallas, Houston, Norman, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Los Angeles before finishing the year off at Vancouver’s BC Place Stadium.
